Trail work day on the Crown on Sunday

Staff report

Mountain-bike riders who love the Prince Creek and Crown trail network will get a chance to help maintain a trail there Sunday.

Aloha Mountain Cyclery is undertaking some TLC on the Skull Bucket Trail in partnership with the Roaring Fork Mountain Bike Association, Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers and the Bureau of Land Management.

Volunteers will meet at 9:30 a.m. at a U-shaped parking lot on Prince Creek Road near where Skull Bucket connects with the road. It’s also near where the Skill Saw Trail, also known as Lower Creekside, meets the Creekside Trail.

Skull Bucket is a 2-mile singletrack trail known for its thrilling descent. It drops about 900 feet with a 28 percent maximum grade.

Volunteers should bring gloves and wear clothes and shoes for hiking. Bring water as well as lunch and snacks.

The work will end at about 2 p.m. and the volunteers will be treated to pizza and drinks by Aloha Mountain Cyclery.

Email to register early for this project.
